USAID, Gender Equality and Female Empowerment Policy Evaluation
Through the ADVANTAGE IDIQ, EnCompass conducted an assessment of the extent to which the USAID Gender Equality and Female Empowerment Policy has been implemented in USAID programs. The evaluation team identified successes and challenges encountered in implementing the Policy, gathered information about the impact of the Policy on USAID’s programming and development results, and identified gaps and lessons learned. Methods included semi-structured individual and group interviews, participatory group discussions in Washington, D.C. and at three missions (Colombia, Regional Development Mission for Asia, and Rwanda), and an online survey. The assessment team also analyzed solicitations for gender integration, reviewed documents, and observed events at two missions.
